Kirby's Dream Collection

Recommended Posts

So as I'm sure at least some of you are aware, Nintendo's releasing a special collection disc for Kirby's 20th Anniversary. I come here today bearing the first screens of said collection (in Japanese).

I see 9 games that looks lie they can be played, with a virtual hallway timeline of the entire series you can look up and explore a bit. That's two cool things in the same game.

I would like to purchase this.

You need to drop the valium, Damned. You are far too unenthusiastic in the context of this great event in history.

Now where's my fucking Castlevania Collection!?

I'm still waiting on the aforementioned Castlevania Collection - and while I'm thinking about it: Final Fantasies I-VI for Wii with museum, extras, and all that shit. Unlockable soundtracks, art, Japanese versions/NES versions/updated versions, that N64 Final Fantasy VII demo with Terra, Locke and Shadow, etc.

Pft. Square makes too much money off of selling the FF games individually to ever put them in a collection again.

Castlevania Collection would be awesome though.

Money talks, and sooner or later they'll find out how much profit they can make doing little more than shuffling some ROMs onto a disc with some archive content and a shitty museum to hub it all together.

Seriously, I love collections and I'm damn well going to buy this Kirby one. I don't see why more companies don't do them for these old classics. You just gotta shovel some ROMs onto a disc and make sure it works. If my $200 laptop from 3 years ago can do it, I'm sure a major game company can too.

Ah, my Goddess! Kirby!

This is definitely worth a purchase! I look forward to playing these games in Wii U Off TV mode. :3

I'd really like it if the GBA remake of Adventure was unlockable. Similarly, the additional games from the DS version of Superstar would be really great also.

Will probably take a pass unless Dream Land 1 and 2 are fully colorized or they add something to the game part of it, as I own them all already.

I only own Dreamland 1 and 2, so I was excited about this until I saw some footage from Crystal Shards. That game looks awful. I don't know if this will be worth it for the other games I don't have. Any Crystal Shards lovers/haters care to give me their opinion?

air ride is hardly a 'classic game' it's from gamecube

they're not selling every kirby game for 30 dollars here

also i can't speak from heavy experience but i remember as a child playing part of kirby 64 at a friends house and thinking it was pretty clunky.

The only lasting complaints I have about K64 is how slow Kirby is in the game, and the ease of difficulty (though that can be lobbed at any kirby game).

it still is a gem of my childhood and it's not all that bad, really.

I KINDA wish they'd include Amazing Mirror, because that's probably one of the best kirby games in recent times. Heck, before Return to Dreamland gave us a real Kirby game, I was calling Amazing Mirror the best Kirby since K64.

I understand why they wouldn't, since I doubt the game was super popular and the multi-player mechanic would be lost without the proper equipment and coding, and if the Mario "collection" is any indication Nintendo won't be doing jack shit in either regard.

amazing mirror is indeed phenomenal. the first time i dropped into another area i was like EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED?!? OH MY GOD THIS IS AWESOME

also kirby 64 is cool, the power combinations are fun (i mean, what other kirby game lets you transform into a fridge that drops food, or an exploding snowman?), but he is a bit slow.

I personally loved kirby 64 - its one of my favorites.

I never understood why they took out the power combinations thing...

oh it's one of my favs too.

how can you hate a game with Zero-Two and that AWESOME battle theme

and a pause menu during which that has two choices: "Continue" and "Tough It Out"

it was a whole cool moment - I only wish the fight was actually hard!

RtD actually had a not-terrible difficulty curve, at least with 1 player. Any more and the game became a cakewalk.
